Tian Pond (Tianchi) marks the midpoint of the Southern Cross-Island Highway. At Tian Pond (Tianchi) you can visit a shrine, which was built to commemorate the veterans and workers who died building the highway. From here you have also splendid views of Yu Mountain (Yushan) South Peak and the southern part of the Central Mountain Range. About 6 kilometers from the shrine along the highway you will come to a place called Kuaigu, one of the most important natural forests along the Southern Cross-Island Highway.
